研究題目 FDTD analysis of an inverse taper coupler for low-loss coupling between Si waveguides and lensed fibers
参加者レポート   I stayed in Davis for three months to participate in the International Training Program and studied in the Next Generation Networking Systems Laboratory at UC Davis.
  Under the supervision of Prof. S. J. Ben Yoo, I carried out three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain calculations of an inverse taper coupler which is one of the low-loss coupling devices between silicon waveguides and optical fibers for photonic integrated circuits. I attended every meeting in the laboratory and reported my progress. I spent most of the time trying to understand how to use simulation software and to carry out a simulation following a condition of a previously-reported paper as a validity check. Finally, I made a presentation for everyone in the laboratory and had a fruitful discussion with them.
  It was a great experience for me to live with my host family. I learnt about American culture and I had a lot of opportunities to improve my English skills.
